DRIVE: California's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program

Fuels and Technologies

The Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program offers a portfolio of funding pathways for vehicle manufacturers, fleet managers  and fuel producers to develop and deploy alternative fuels and vehicle technologies.  Many newer low-carbon fuels are still in the developmental stage, while others, such as natural gas and ethanol are becoming more widely available.  Automobile manufacturers, utilities and federal, state, regional, and local agencies are investing in advanced fuel and vehicle technologies and the Energy Commission is committed to leveraging Program funds to accelerate their growth.
